Crime Control and Women
Feminist Implications of Criminal Justice Policy

Edited by:

March 1998 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Crime Control and Women reveals the current limitations of criminal justice policies that are oblivious to the impact they exert on citizens who vary by gender, race and/or social class. Feminist in perspective, the contributors to this volume share a common vision of hope that social change will result from social control and punishment that is just and human, with commitments to prevention, education and treatment.
